This is a beautiful site to watch the sunset and see the stars! Great boat landing, good swimming (but it was too chilly for us to swim). The kitchen area is superb. Not many passing through this area, so it's pretty quiet. I also caught a walleye and a real nice smallmouth just down the south shore.

The site is secluded and you're more likely to see moose than people here. The site is open and elevated with a view to the West. There is one large, flat tent pad at the top of the site, but little for other tent options.

The campsite faces west. There is a good view from the kitchen. The landing area, I thought, was great. There was a flat rock shelf that was two inches under water. We paddled right up onto it and could unload (it was a climb up to camp, though). There is only one good tent pad, and it was hard to drive in tent stakes because of the rocks. You might be able to find one other tent pad. There is a potential jumping rock, though we didn't try it out. There is only one hanging tree. The site is protected on the north, south, and east, but open to the west so you get a breeze to drive away bugs.
